Perkins
Hostess (Former Employee), Gladstone, MOMay 1, 2014
Pros: discounted meals
Cons: poor management
Working at Perkins was a bit of a welcomed challenge. Customer satisfaction was very important. Duties included, but was not limited to: money handling, cleaning display cases and front lobby, answering phones, taking orders, seating customers, and filling orders.

Clean, fun place to work
Server (Former Employee), Brookings, SD 57006April 30, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: overnights
I was a server so customer service was a huge part of my every day. I learned to deal with unhappy customers, and what I need to do to make the situation better. The management was not always present during my work hours, but the management team worked really well together. I got along with all of my co-workers. I did not like working the over nights, – more... it made school very difficult. I realy enjoyed working with people, and providing my services to the loyal customers we had. – less

Great people
Bus-Person/Host (Current Employee), Roseville, MNApril 22, 2014
A typical day is clocking in and getting right to work. You may either have to clean right away or help seating or cashing out customers. Management is great. The co-workers are fantastic. You develop relationships with everybody, including the customers.

Fun and exciting, with a down home family vibe.
Cook (Former Employee), Poplar Bluff, MOApril 21, 2014
most days consist of clocking in immediately followed by pulling and cooking orders off the wheel. the servers yelling order in or out as they passed in and out of doors to the kitchen while pulling tickets or running food.

Fast paced workplace with high levels of customer interaction
Server (Former Employee), Newburgh, NYApril 9, 2014
Pros: skills learned, fast-paced, generally positive environment
Cons: short breaks, could be very stressful at times
Perkins provided me with an environment that included high levels of customer interaction, time management, and problem solving skills. I held this job for every summer break I had before I returned to college. On a typical day, I would arrive at the restaurant at approximately 8 a.m., and immediately begin to greet and serve tables. I would take customer – more... orders, prepare certain food items (drinks, salads, side items, desserts), run them to tables, continually check up on tables, and drop off checks. I was required to memorize the extensive menu, answer guest questions, and manage time wisely as I had to service several tables with multiple guests at one time. I also had to bus my own tables once guests left. I would greet, serve, and bus tables all day, often without taking a break, until the evening, approximately 6 p.m. – less

My very first job
Restaurant staff member (Former Employee), Newburgh, NYApril 9, 2014
Pros: great people, great management.
Cons: busy times were crazy!
Lots of fond memories working for Perkins back in the day, in addition to some not so fond memories. It was my very first job ever which in turn started me on my eventual journey to a career in restaurant/hotel management. Started as a dishwasher, ended my run there as a cook/cook trainer. The people were great, management took great care of me. Opportunities – more... to excel were always present. As for the bad, I endured a couple of injuries during my tenure, but nothing serious. – less

feels like i worked with family, loving/caring environment
Server (Former Employee), Ashland, VAMarch 10, 2014
Pros: 1/2 price lunches
Cons: slow business
This particular location in Ashland Va. had an extremely slow work pace.. i worked part-time so i didn't receive any benefits. Because business was very slow & i worked off of commission the compensation wasn't much. But i loved the people that i worked with so didn't mind and i was just in high school at the time! Hardest part of my job at the time – more... was learning about the alcohol (first time selling alcohol). Most enjoyable part of work was being around my coworkers! – less

Dishwasher (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAMarch 7, 2014
Pros: people, atmosphere
Cons: no advancing
You are your job title here. While it sounds silly to say, you would have to live it to understand. While your job is secure, there is little room for advancement. However they co workers are the best you will find.
